Topic - fear of needles

ice.solo - on 14 Dec 2012
any good tales?

yesterday i got a flu shot. the wife went first, didnt flinch. daughter next, short squeak and done. my turn, i sweated and looked away and even tho i didnt even feel it the smell of the swab and the feel of the stuff going into my muscle made my head go woozey and i had to lay down and have my blood pressure taken. apparently my face went green.

now ive had dozens of needles after accidents, seen nasty things, had accupuncture, given injections myself and had lengthy IVs - but a standard jab in the sanity of a doctors office took me down like a whimp.
as i lay on the sofa waiting for my head to stop spinning 2 schoolgirls got their shots whilst looking at their phones...

am i the only one?
